Another less than straight forward day for us Addicks.

I woke to an article from Rich Cawley saying that Duchalelet was preparing the sale of Patrick Bauer to Blackburn for as little as £400,000. A deal attractive to the Belgian as the cash would all be upfront.

Rich followed this by suggesting that Duchatelet is also planning to cash in Tariqe Fosu and Joe Aribo, and that he will not sanction a pre-season tour. This because he refuses to pay for anything other than the operating costs, which he will fund with a fire-sale.

Well, that was my initial reaction, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me if I was Ezri Konsa. I suspect there was no real Premier League interest, at least those willing to meet an asking price or a timing. So Ezri, unlike many young ambitious footballers, decides that the next step on the ladder is a move up to somewhere he can be a regular, stay in London and be in a more populous shop window.

Regan Charles-Cook had fallen behind in the pecking order last season and has left on a free transfer to Gillingham after the midfielder turned down the offer of a one-year extension to his current Charlton contract, which the club actually announced he had signed.

For the first time in Duchatelet’s reign we didn’t pull our pants down and have a player boot sale in Valley car park on deadline day. Despite the vultures circling, credit where credit’s due, the club resisted offers for Josh Magennis, Tariqe Fosu, and hot interest in Ezri Konsa and go forward for the rest of the season which looks a very competitive squad, depending on injuries of course.

KAG out on loan

Probably to help balance the wage bill a little 20-year old Karlan-Ahearne Grant went on loan to Crawley today for the rest of the season.

With Mavididi, Kaikai and Zyro, KAG was expendable and a run in a lower division will hopefully see him find his feet, and possibly his level. Harry Kewell’s Crawley are on a good run and have moved to 7 points off the play-off’s and play at lowly Chesterfield tomorrow.

Michał Żyro signs on loan

Karl Robinson, who can keep a secret as well as my 8-year old, talked about Michal Zyro post game on Saturday in everything but name.

Today Zyro signed on loan from Wolves for the rest of the season. Zyro according to Wolves fans is mostly a number 9, but as is Robinson’s want he can play in all of the advanced attacking roles.

Sullay Kaikai on loan

Nope, me neither but I don’t pay an awful lot of interest to Palarse’s reserves. (more)

According to Wikipedia Sulaiman Borbor “Sullay” Kaikai is 22, was born in Southwark and has been at Palace since he was 15. He’s had loan spells at Crawley Town, Cambridge United, Shrewsbury twice and Brentford making 77 league appearances and scoring 20 goals. Not bad.
